About this listing
Musladin Lake House is located just a few meters from the salty Big Lake on the island of Mljet, the greenest island on the Croatian coast, home to Mljet National Park. It can accommodate up to five people, and is fully equipped. 60-90€ per night.
The apartment is situated less than a minute's walk from the lake, in the middle of the national park. The kitchen is equipped with all the necessary dishes, a sink and electric stove, fridge and microwave, air conditioning, and a big dinner table with a bench. There are two rooms, one with two beds, and the other with two beds and a couch. Both rooms have a view of the lake. The bathroom is roomy, with a shower booth. There's a porch in front of the apartment, mostly in shade, with a big table and chairs, and a space for kids to play. There's a free Wi-Fi connection in the apartment. Parking spot is about 50 meters away. There is no washer, but you can use ours if necessary, without charge. Off-season prices, and prices for less than 3 persons, are negotiable. :)
Interaction with guests
Somebody is pretty much always at home (usually my grandma, Slavka, who is also the owner of the apartments and speaks fluent Italian and German). We will not intrude in any way, and will always be in reach in case you need anything.
Our village, Babine Kuće, is one of the oldest villages on the island (our family house was built more than a hundred years ago). It is very small, with only a few houses and less than two dozen permanent residents. This makes it perfect for a relaxing vacation, since it's always very quiet, with only sounds of the waves, crickets and birds (and an occasional tourist on a bike, cycling around the lake). There's a rent-a-bike and a restaurant in the village, a post office half a kilometer away, and a store 3 km away. Being right beside the Big Lake, the village is a perfect starting place for exploration of our beautiful national park.
Our village is 3 km away from Polace port, and about 40 km away from Sobra port. There's a bus station half a kilometer from our house. If you wish to explore the national park, we recommend renting a bike, or a car if you wish to see more of the island.
Other things to note
The first guests visited our house in 1923, almost a hundred years ago. Ever since, we have been renting rooms and apartments to people from all around the world. At one point we even housed the Prince of Kent, who, after saying some nice words about his stay with us, caused a whole flood of tourists from England to book their vacations with us (not that we mind!).
We don't like to impose on our guests too much. As long as you're not too loud, and keep the apartment in the same shape as you've found it, we're going to get along real fine. :) Pets, unfortunately, are not allowed (one bad experience too much...).
